  • what if you don’t have a twister jar ///

  • You’ll want to double the recipe and you’ll likely have to stop blending and scrape the sides of the jar back down to the blade several times. Happy blending!

  • Good, but I did have the following modifications: I used all almonds because we were out of the other nuts, I added one extra date for texture and I did not use protein powder because I don’t use protein powder. I really have trouble with the flavor of flaxseeds so I also added a handful of chocolate chips in after I dumped the mixture out of the blender.

    Overall I’d say the bars are good, although the flaxseed flavor is still lurking in the background. I’m glad I got to use my new twister jar!
